Members Notice 19 May 2020

Dear Member

We would like to thank all members who have registered for the online tee booking system and hopefully everyone is getting to grips with it as we are now a few days in.  

At present the 7- day advance booking that is in place becomes live at midnight and feedback from several members has indicated this is not an ideal time.  We will, therefore, be changing the time to 8pm which we feel will accommodate most members. This change of time will commence from 19th May 2020

 

Members Notice 16 May 2020

Dear Member,

With the experience of the first few days behind us, we believe we are in a position to increase the amount of golf that each member may play each week.  

·         Each 7 days refer to a Monday through to Sunday each week. 

·         With effect from Monday, 18th May, members may play up to 4 x 9 holes in the following 7 days.

·         With effect from Monday 25th May, we are opening the full course for 18-holes teeing off from the 1st tee.

                     a) Members may play two full rounds starting from the 1st tee each week
                     b) Members may also play 9 holes from the 10th tee daily between the hours 

                        of 07:00 and 09:20, at 10-minute intervals.                           

                     c) There is no weekly limit to this. 
                     d) All 18-hole rounds will start at the 1st tee between 08:00 and 18:00.  
                     e) Members may not start from the 1st tee earlier or later than these times.  

Please be aware that all bookings made from the 1st tee will be counted as an 18-hole booking, irrespective of the number of holes played. 

In addition to the number of rounds that members may play, any spare times on the day of play that are available can be booked from 0730 that morning.

No member may play on any day or at any time that his/her membership category does not allow.

In these exceptional times, and whilst Government restrictions are in place, we request that members who can play during the week would do so in order that those who are working may play at the weekend.

SOCIAL DISTANCING MUST BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY. 

Your co-operation in assisting to make the above work would be very much appreciated. 

STAY ALERT, KEEP SAFE AND ENJOY YOUR GOLF
